So you've hired in all the necessary flooring equipment, prepped the customer’s floor, bought and applied product, laid a wonderful floor that you’re proud of. Next step is to raise and send your invoice, pay the guys and OK suppliers' invoices and then wait, and wait ….. phone, email – nothing. Eventually an excuse … aww poor me, sorry I can’t pay you – Corona pandemic!
Use this enforced shutdown time wisely and you can plan and prepare for a relaunch that will take your business to the next level rather than a battle for survival. This article is a brief prompt of disciplines that you would do well to explore so that when restrictions are lifted you will be ahead of the pack.
Multi-Hire was delighted to host their techno-promo day at our Warrington, Cheshire depot. We wish to thank three of the UK's most popular and best loved machine manufacturers and Jofa Resins who are quickly establishing a name and reputation as a supplier of some really exciting, high-end flooring products.
The wrong surface preparation machine is about as helpful as a power cut!
Site power can be the bane of the flooring contractor’s life. 110 volts (or 240 volts dropped down to 110) has its limitations. For the really heavy duty jobs 110 volt machines lack the guts or the power to do the job, and even where they can just about get by, they can add many expensive man hours to the cost of the quote.
Across our hire fleet we have a good mixture of both new and old machines. We believe that machines well maintained are more reliable and out-perform badly maintained new ones.
Sometimes, we are asked by customers and machine dealers to service and repair equipment they have purchased at ex-hire auctions.
